Study insights



Following the motto of application-oriented learning, our laboratories offer our future industrial engineers the best conditions for immediately trying out what they have learned in a realistic environment.

The following three labs are available to our students:

Student Projects

Practical projects enable student teams to apply their field-specific and methodological expertise by working on real problems which companies present to them. Additionally, the projects allow the students to present their results to the corresponding company and discuss their findings.

While learning for their future careers, students are supported by experienced coaches.

Semester abroad

The fifth semester, which all of our students spend abroad, is one of the highlights of the program.


Lucas Lexa, student of Industrial Engineering & Management, spent his semester abroad at the University of Southern Denmark:

 “It is a very large university, but the class sizes are nevertheless small. The professors are very approachable and are always open to questions and ready to support you. Due to the size of the university, it is easy to find a wide range of suitable courses. Most of them are taught in English, with the instructors having a very high level of language competence, so it is easy to follow the lectures.”

Mexico City

Korbinian Gaissmaier, student of Industrial Engineering & Management, spent his semester abroad at the Instituto Politecnico National:

“Although it is a huge university, you quickly find your way around. The lectures, presentations, and exams are in Spanish, but this is quite manageable with a basic knowledge of the language. As an exchange student, you are welcomed with open arms and a lot of curiosity. Needless to say, Mexico City is an incredible place with all the possibilities you can imagine.”

New Zealand

Luis Spechtenhauser, industrial engineer, reports on his semester abroad at the Unitec Campus in Auckland:

“Teaching and studying at the Unitec Campus in Auckland takes place in small classes with usually no more than 20 students. You quickly gain an insight into the culture of the country, for example through the many student clubs and organizations, which offer activities ranging from language exchanges to rugby tryouts. The latter was especially interesting, since a lot of the country revolves around this sport. The nightlife in Auckland needs to be mentioned, too. I particularly liked the many small pubs with frequent live performances by smaller bands, which invariably manage to create a great atmosphere.”


Thinking outside the box and networking are very important to us. In our two series of events, Alumni im Gespräch and Let's talk WING, we showcase new developments in the environment and professional profile of industrial engineers.
